SMART CHOICES INTRODUCTION

14/11/2016
Our school community is committed to providing and promoting healthier food and drink choices in line with the Queensland Government’s Smart Choices – Healthy Food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools.
Smart Choices requires schools to address all areas of food supply and promotion within the school environment, including the tuckshop/canteen and vending machines, the classroom and classroom rewards, and school events such as field trips, excursions, sports days, celebrations and school fundraisers. 
During the year, our school will be promoting healthy eating messages by conducting events and fundraisers that support healthy eating and are in the best health interests of those who participate, including students, families and the wider school community.
So in addition to making GREEN and AMBER food and drinks available at our school tuckshop/canteen, we are seeking to provide only food and drinks from the GREEN and AMBER category in our fundraising and event activities.
Visit www.education.qld.gov.au/schools/healthy/food-drink-strategy.html for more information on Smart Choices, including examples of food and drinks from the GREEN and AMBER categories.
We thank you for your continued assistance in supporting our efforts to promote healthy food and drinks in our school community, and look forward to working together to promote healthy eating at our school.
If you would like to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 5409 7333
